Create a special treasure box for yourself where you keep items your child gives you.
Make a weekly appointment with your child. Let your child pick the activity – within appropriate limits. Younger children will do better choosing from several possibilities offered by you and you won’t risk spoiling the fun by having to reject their suggestions.
Have dinner by candlelight. Let the children choose a favorite meal for the evening. Have a special dessert with it.
Sometimes go out with just one of the children, if possible, for a special meal outing, for some personal time together.
Take time to rock an older child, at bedtime, just for time to talk together. (If your child feels too old for this, you’ll hear about it!)
Plan a cold weather camp-in! Bring out the sleeping bags and set up your campsite in the living room. Use flashlights, tell stories, eat popcorn, and, if you have a fireplace, roast hot dogs or marshmallows. Make a fun drink – hot milk with honey, carob milk, or herbal tea!
Create a real treasure hunt with real buried treasure! Bury a box filled with old costume jewelry or other surprises in the garden. Write and hide clues leading ultimately to a treasure map with the appropriate X noted. Mark the spot with an X so they dig in the right place.
Garnish your child’s milk or juice glass with a slice of banana or orange, a piece of pineapple, a few frozen seedless grapes or a maraschino cherry.
When you are away from each other, agree to a particular time when you’ll send each other “love and prayer vibes”.
Write a note to your child and leave it where he will see it first thing in the morning.
